You have to remember that this hotel is in south Africa and comparing it to others I have stayed in, in the area I would say it was excellent if comparing. The rooms were clean and comfy and more than adequate. I stayed here 7 weeks in total and yes experienced power cuts however the hotel did have a back... More

Ermelo Inn were extremely accommodating with my last minute booking, and upon my arrival they had already learnt my name. The room was clean, spacious and despite the building being old - the furnishing and finishing touches are new and modern. The rooms have aircon and flat screen tv's - a must for me. I do however feel that the... More

I had heard some pretty negative reviews from colleagues who stayed at the Ermelo Inn a few months ago for a training workshop so was apprehensive about staying there. I had heard complaints that the food was not good and that the variety of meats served was very limited. Imagine my surprise when I booked in for a workshop that... More

Ermelo is extremely cold, rooms were nice and warm and the staff were very friendly, accommodated us on early check in. Dinner was tops, excellent, compliments to the Chef. Stayed there a couple of times and will go definitely make use of them again.

Of all the places that I've stayed in, this must be the worst of them all. Although the hotel had just been newly refurbished the bad service didn't do it any justice. On arrival we waited for about an hour with inexperienced staff who couldn't find our bookings. We were eventually told that their system was down and that we... More

Spent 2 x nights at the Ermelo Inn as we we working in the area. Unfortunately 1400 coal trucks pass through the town per day and you hear most of them. I swapped rooms with one of my clients as he could not sleep with the noise from the trucks. Unfortunately there is a set of traffic lights right outside... More

Not value for money . One or more, sometimes a significant number of guests staying at the property, are a nuisance because of their behavior, Some of these behaviors can include racuousness in common areas, playing loud music or TV, public drunkenness, and prostitution, all while management is apathetic to this activity.

I stayed for three months with work at the start of the year and found the staff friendly and helpful from desk and management down to cleaners and gate guards. The room was large and clean as was the bed and the amenities comfortable. The food was plentiful and the serving and waiting staff attentive. The bar was nice with... More

This hotel appears to be getting it wrong in attempting to adopt a low-cost strategy whilst charging more for the services that are obtainable at relatively lower rates at other local hotels. Straight to the point..."OUR EXPERIENCE AS A FAMILY WAS TERRIBLE WHILST WE STAYED IN THIS HOTEL ON 14&15 JUNE 2013" as follows: RECEPTION: (i) We arrived in the... More

Accommodation ok but with localised power cuts and water shortages made it an intersting stay. Generator and water tanks now installed to assist when necessary. Price of beer has increased since last stay probably to pay for the pool table, table tennis and dart board in games room. Not much else has improved, need more tv chanels to relieve the... More
